Applications

It is applied as an alternative solvent to dichloromethane, where it has a higher bp. It is used as an intermediate for dyes and pharmaceuticals, as a solvent and a dielectric fluid, a vulcanizing agent.

Notes

Store away from oxidizing agents. Keep the container tightly closed and place it in a cool, dry and well ventilated condition.
